I have made these apple fritters for breakfast twice now and they are fast becoming a family favorite. Not too sweet and easy to make with a few simple ingredient you are bound to have in your pantry. A great way to use up apples that are too ripe and have started to go soft.
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbs. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 apple, cored and diced
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
Oil for frying
In a large mixing bowl mix flour sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together. Add diced apples and toss to coat well in the flour mixture. Add milk and eggs. Stir to combine.
In a fryer or heavy bottom pot heat oil to 350°. Carefully drop batter by spoonfuls into hot oil. Allow to cook through 2 or 3 at a time until a deep dark brown. Do not burn. Remove fritters from oil and place on a rack placed over a baking sheet to cool. While still warm roll in sugar, if desired.
I like to take 3 Tbs. of sugar and mix it with 1 tsp. of cinnamon and roll the fritters in that for a little more sweet cinnamon flavor. They are delicious all on their own as well.
So how about it? Think there will be any apple fritters at your breakfast table anytime soon?
